Piggy Bank overview
Image from here
Ever wonder where all your money actually goes?
Yes, I'm one of those people that normally is not thinking budget. I'm very thrifty when it comes to shopping that I normally just think that since I got things for such a great price I can buy even more. So not right especially during this economic times.
Wanting to add some funds to my piggy bank instead of cracking it open every week I was discussing finances with Liz one of my very best friends and she told me about Mint.
You can actually log on to Mint and have all of your accounts in one place. You can place your student loans, credit cards, heating, mortgage payments,investments, etc. Everything! It will actually analyze what you are spending and where you are spending it.
It also has a section where you can set up budgets for whatever you like such as trips to the supermarket/food. When you use your debit card or credit card at the market it will automatically update your food budget and you'll know what you have left for the rest of month.
I can't wait to try it out. I'll be signing up for it this weekend and the best part....it's FREE!
Have any of you every tried this out? What money saving techniques do you use to help save?
